Conhecimento Comum



The last few Harry Potter companion books that I read were sadly underwhelming, but this one won me back into the fold! Designed by the Minalima team (who are also responsible for all of the graphic design for the film series itself), this book is a literal playground that allows readers to fully immerse themselves back into the visual imagery of the films and be inspired all over again by the story’s whimsy. Packed with stills from the films, behind the scenes imagery, and design artwork, I doubt that it would be possible to pack anymore information in - and yet, the writing team also held their own. Interspersed into the well-placed layouts are text panels that (for once) stay neatly contained alongside their visuals, and give us just the right balance of narration to retell the story. Much of the text is also woven with memories and personal stories from the actors and design team, so we get a real glimpse behind the scenes into the personalities of the Harry Potter world. Blended so artfully together, the book feels like a unique family scrapbook and really stands out amongst the plethora of other Potter publications that have been released over the years. Sure, we don’t get the depth of some of the speciality books (the art and design tomes are some of my favourites), but this book played the magical tone so perfectly that I am hard-pressed to think of how it could actually be improved.… (mais)

Wow. I'm always wandering Middle Earth in my head. Now I have some maps! A fun book.

Generally well presented with a good cast, and certainly exceeding the ghastly BBC TV adaptation - however, it still suffers from being too abridged; the story is rushed and characters severely underdeveloped. Even just an extra 30 minutes per part would have made a huge difference.

It's an enjoyable listen if you're familiar with the story, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it to anyone who hasn't read the novels.
